TARIFF OF PROFESSIONAL FEES

(Please note that the tariff of professional fees are in process of being updated)

 

10.1 INTRODUCTION

10.1.1 General

This tariff of fees has been determined by the South African Council of Town and Regional Planners as the recommended minimum professional fees for town and regional planning services, and should only be used in the absence of any other more appropriate agreement. Thus the professional fees for any town and regional planning services should be agreed between the town and regional planner and the client in accordance with the type, complexity and nature of the professional services to be rendered. Where, in the absence of an agreement referred to in Section 28(1)(g) of the Act or in the case of a dispute relating to professional fees payable, the minimum scale of fees contained in this Chapter shall be applied.

10.1.2 Omissions, additions and services not defined

  1. If any portion of the services described in this tariff of fees are omitted from the services rendered, the fees shall be reduced by an amount determined in accordance with the Time Tariff (Rule 10.7) and based on the estimated extent of the work which is omitted.
  2. If services additional to those normally forming part of the town and regional planner's duties in undertaking an assignment are included, additional fees may be charged in accordance with the tariffs for such work set out in this Chapter.
  3. Where no tariff of fees has been prescribed for services or where the services are of such a nature that the tariff of fees contained in this Chapter does not apply, the Time Tariff (Rule 10.7) shall be applied.
10.1.3 Cost of Units

Reference to a cost unit (cu) in this tariff of fees means an amount equal to the Category A2 time tariff determined from time to time in terms of Clause 10.7.1 (b).

10.1.4 Portions of Land

Where reference in this Tariff of Fees is made to a portion, or portions, of land it means a portion of land which is or is intended to be cadastrally defined and recorded as a separate entity in the offices of a Surveyor General but shall exclude public roads, servitudes and land defined for purposes related to minerals and mining.

 

10.1.5 Value Added Tax

All suggested fee calculations set out hereunder EXCLUDE Value Added Tax, which should be added to the finally agreed total fee at the currently applicable rate, as a separately identifiable cost.


10.2 STRATEGIC PLANNING

10.2.1 Definition

For the application of this tariff of fees strategic planning includes:

An Integrated Development Plan as provided for in the Local Government Transition (Second Amendment), 1996 (Act 97 of 1996) or superseding legislation;
Land Development Objectives as provided for in the Development Facilitation Act, 1995 (Act 67 of 1995) or superseding legislation;
Development Frameworks for both vacant or developed lands;
Structure Plans or Development Policy Plans for both vacant or developed land; and
Sectoral plans as defined in Cl 2(50) of the Western Cape Planning and Development Act, 1999.
In general, Strategic Planning involves the following basic generic steps or actions which may or may not be applicable to all the above categories:

  • Determination of the status quo situation of the planning area
  • Formulation of a vision
  • Identification of needs and priorities
  • Formulation of goals and objectives
  • Formulation of strategies
  • Creation of planning and development policies
  • Identification of projects and the preparation of business plans and implementation programmes
  • Illustration in the form of a spatial framework plan
  • The creation of a management and monitoring mechanism

10.2.2 Scope

Subject to the general exclusions of Rule 10.9 the tariff of fees provides for the research, investigations, the processing of information and data analysis, meetings with the client and other interested parties, and the compilation of report/s supporting maps and plans, and the formulation of recommendations and planning proposals. The scope of work shall include three components, unless otherwise determined by the town and regional planner and the client, as set out in Tables 10.2A, 10.2B, 10.2C and 10.2D.

10.2.3 Determination of Fees

The calculation of, and agreement to, any professional fee is a function of :

  • the physical extent and complexity of the planning area;
  • its environmental and social diversity;
  • its population size and density; and
  • the nature of the desired end product.

Consequently in order to agree a fee, it is necessary to first agree the nature of the end product that the Client requires, and the process to be followed so as to achieve that goal.

A suggested appropriate method of reaching agreement, would be for the project fees to be calculated on the basis of each activity that has to be completed and the expected time taken to achieve that product, calculated as per the Time Tariffs, for the appropriate skill level – see Clause 10.7. These would be scheduled by activity group, project phase, programme and time scale. These fee costs can then be agreed with the Client as a project fee budget, from which variance may occur, but only with both parties agreement.

In the absence of any other more appropriate agreement, the minimum fees in respect of strategic planning projects shall be calculated using the applicable Table 10.2A, 10.2B, 10.2C or 10.2D according to the category of strategic planning projects. The fee calculation made shall be no less than the minimum number of cost units in the relevant table below.
